    I just recently came back into gaming. Started playing League of Legends like 3 months ago.
    Any idea what is a good video card replacement? Thanks! =)
  3. I'm running a CPU and PSU of a similar era to yours but I don't game with the machine and also have no idea of what that game is or requires. I am interested to see what others might come up with and their reasons why as I do have an idea of what could be run in that machine.
  4. monitor/resolution would be a helP. as would oPsys.


    missed those but don't like looking uP others hardware.. ( monitor ) I guess 1920x1080?

    $200 a GTX660
